BSD City, May 29, 2021 — Sinar Mas Land’s commitment, through PT Bumi Serpong Damai, Tbk., to help the Tangerang Regency Government prevent and relieve the Covid-19 pandemic impacts continues. Following the 1,000 food packages distribution to the Tangerang Regency Government, the company this time sent 1,000 antigen test kits and 1,000 PCR reagent test kits. These were to anticipate possible Covid-19 rising cases in Tangerang Regency, two weeks after the Islamic holy day Idul Fitri or Lebaran.
The kits showed the company’s care and social responsibility care for the community around Tangerang Regency. Corporate Affairs Division Head of PT BSD – Sinar Mas Land Dony Martadisata symbolically handed those thousands of test kits to Tangerang Regent Ahmed Zaki Iskandar at the Pagedangan District Office in Tangerang Regency on Friday (5/28). They would later be distributed to the Covid-19 testing staff such as the local police officers, as well as public health centers (puskesmas) and hospitals’ staff in Tangerang Regency.
Ahmed appreciated Sinar Mas Land’s assistance. “We do need Covid-19 test kits for the Tangerang Regency’s residents, especially after the Lebaran holiday to anticipate any increasing case number. Sinar Mas Land really helps the Tangerang Regency Government fight against Covid-19,” he said.
Meanwhile, Dony said the company hoped the kits would help the government get information on the confirmed Covid-19 cases among its people. “With massive Covid-19 tests, the local government should be able to handle the cases more quickly to prevent the cases from growing even bigger,” says Dony.
